The Quiet Girl (12A)

The Quiet Girl tells the story of Cáit - a nine year old girl from an overcrowded, dysfunctional family who is sent away to live with foster parents for the summer. Despite a warm reception from the woman, Eibhlín, the man of the house, Séan, keeps his distance from Cáit and she from him, but over time, their strained relationship begins to deepen. Slowly, in the care of the Kinsellas, Cáit blossoms and discovers a new way of living. But in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth.

Based on the acclaimed story Foster by Claire Keegan, The Quiet Girl is a complex and delicate coming-of-age drama that explores questions of family, neglect and loss through the eyes of its young protagonist.

"There’s a heartfelt simplicity to the film’s story, a rumination on grief’s longevity and pain through the eyes of a child." Alicia Haddick, Little White Lies

The Drover’s Wife: The Legend Of Molly Johnson (15)

In 1893, heavily pregnant Molly Johnson (Leah Purcell) and her children struggle to survive the harsh Australian landscape after her husband leaves to drove sheep in the high country. One day, she finds escaped Indigenous Australian convict (Rob Collins) wounded on her property and an unlikely bond begins to form between them. Meanwhile, new town lawman Nate Clintoff realises that Molly's husband is missing and sends his constable to investigate.

A thrilling tale that explores racism and misogyny under colonial rule, and a labour of love for Purcell, who has also adapted Henry Lawson’s short story into a play and a novel.

"It's Purcell's powerhouse performance that lends the film its punchier, gritty edge." Debbie Zhou, The Guardian

Wild Men (15)

WILD MEN is a razor-sharp, Coen Brothers-esque, black comedy. Martin’s version of a mid-life crisis looks a little different than most. Hilariously ill-equipped to live off the land and yet clad in Viking like animal skins, he wanders the forest in a misguided attempt to regain his independence.

But when he crosses paths with an injured drug dealer, he finds an unlikely ally in his quest for “manhood.” The duo begin a beautiful friendship spent evading police, criminals, and the cold hard reality which the world seeks to bring them back to.

Director: Thomas Daneskov

Writers: Thomas Daneskov, Morten Pape

"Daneskov... has created a wickedly funny and genuinely heartfelt tale of companionship set against some jaw-dropping scenery that never ceases to amaze." The Upcoming

Benediction (12A)

A complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the First World War, Siegfried Sassoon (Jack Lowden / Peter Capaldi), a soldier decorated for his bravery on the battlefield, became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service.

Legendary still today for his poetry inspired by his experiences on the Western Front, he was adored by both members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and theatre scene. He embarked on affairs with several high-profile men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality, whilst at the same time, broken by the horrors of war, his life’s journey became a quest for salvation.

"Benediction is not an easy experience and some of the caustic, brittle dialogue scenes with Sassoon's celebrity acquaintances are grating - yet deliberately so. The sadness is overwhelming." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

NT Live: Straight Line Crazy (12A)

Ralph Fiennes leads David Hare’s blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.

Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?

Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

Live shows coming up this summer for Jonny include The Great Escape Festival as well as an official showcase at Americanafest In Nashville this September

Kate Ellis:

Kate Ellis is an Americana/Folk singer-songwriter. She was born In Louisiana and raised In New York but is now based In London.

Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father who was an important early musical influence – as a young man he once played guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started out.

Kate uses melancholy Americana and Folk to conduct fearless soul-searching. Her emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflection and feelings. The music is intimate and evocative – you listen and want to be there.

The Gavin Fairhall Lever Trio (12A)

Gavin Fairhall Lever brings together three acclaimed musicians to present a fresh, contemporary folk music born of their diverse roots. Punk fiddle meets jazz bass and Balkan guitar, in a colourful mix of the traditional and the original.

Known for his consistently strong collaborative work at the forefront of London’s thriving folk scene, with TEYR, The Rad Orchestra, and Jez Hellard, multi-instrumentalist and composer James Patrick Gavin creates music that dances a line between tradition and irreverence. This new trio showcases Gavin’s melodic invention and his mastery of the full range of sounds and textures of the violin.

Adrian Lever has played on stages from Lewes Guitar Festival to the Barbican. Lever’s clear tenor voice delivers the songs of the trio, while his seasoned and steady guitarist’s hand forms the rhythmic heart, complete with characteristic Balkan and flamenco stylings.

Tim Fairhall contributes a distinctive style, coming from a background in contemporary jazz, improv and post-classical electronica. He has performed on stages as diverse as Cologne Philharmonic and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and brings an improvisational alertness and sensitivity, jazz musicianship and an adventurous spirit to the trio.

Together, the venturesome trio represent the best of collaborative creation, and are a compelling new voice on the contemporary folk scene

“The sound of today’s London Irish” - Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2.
